For unto us a Child is born, unto us a Son is given; and the government will be upon His shoulder. And His name will be called Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, and Prince of Peace. of the increase of His government and peace there will be no end, upon the throne of David and over His kingdom, to order it and establish it with judgment and justice from that time forward, even forever. The zeal of the Lord of hosts will perform this (Isaiah 9:6-7 NKJV).
Read Psalm 16:17, Romans 11:33-35.
Christ is the final revelation of God
One aspect of Christ being a Counselor is that in the New Testament and in Christ Himself; we have the final revelation of God. This can be seen in the book of Revelation of which the apostle John says: The revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave Him to show His servants-things which must shortly take place. And He sent and signified it by His angel to His servant John, who bore witness to the word of God, and to the testimony of Jesus Christ, to all things that he saw. Blessed is he who reads and those who hear the words of this prophecy, and keep those things which are written in it; for the time is near. (Revelation 1:1-3). If want to be a biblical counselor you need to know two books the Bible and the human heart. The Bible is the special revelation and the human heart is part of his general revelation. There are far too many Christian counselors who are so in name only. Read the Bible through and through and understand what it means. The word of God tells us that we have the mind of Christ (1 Corinthians 2:16). How do you express what is on your mind? You do it by words of the language that you speak.
In John 1:18 it says, for the law was given through Moses, but grace and truth came through Jesus Christ. No one has seen God at any time. The only begotten Son, who is in the bosom of the Father, He has declared Him (NKJV).
Christ is the Cornerstone, the apostles and prophets, its foundation.
They laid the foundation of miracles, signs and revelatory gifts. But we are the building of God. The moment we are saved we become part of the building and the body of Christ. Through the Holy Spirit had the revelation God breathed through them, so that the New Testament like the old is the inerrant word of God.
